  1. DIY Catch can for the V

    Cadillac ATS-V Series Forum
    Your setup is extremely thorough and well done.I examined the pcv system and thought of doing something along the same lines but seeing most of the heavily modified guys not even running cans to begin with made me write off going that far into it.I think I tied up less than $150 and maybe 30min...
  2. DIY Catch can for the V

    Cadillac ATS-V Series Forum
    I occasionally see guys ask about catch cans for these cars so I am putting this out there hoping they will run across this in the future.As has been discussed the V already does a excellent job of baffling oil out of the engine from the factory however it cant get absolutely everything.Renicks...
  3. Anybody eyeing a Blackwing CT4 next ?

    Cadillac ATS-V Series Forum
    I gotta agree with you guys.The styling is very subtle and the fact that now they have a watered down V version just makes it even less appealing to pay a premium for that car.I have been in new GM's with the 10speed right off the dealer lot that clunked and they drove just as confused as the...
  4. Used ATS-Vs not selling well?

    Cadillac ATS-V Series Forum
    That is correct.Most auction cars even ones sold at dealers with clean Carfaxes will have had some repairs performed.That would be the way to go if you are looking for the cheapest car but personally I would only consider either a certified vehicle or atleast one with a maintenance record from a...
  5. Anybody eyeing a Blackwing CT4 next ?

    Cadillac ATS-V Series Forum
    Looks like its 4" longer and pretty much confirmed to have the same powerplant as the current ATS-V and the CT5 the same as that of the current CTS-V.Slight bumps in power and new 10 speeds are in speculation as well but not yet confirmed.Aside from the extra back seat space and updated 2019...
  6. Alfa QV vs CTS V

    2016+ CTS-V General Discussion Forum
    The QV and ATS-V have almost identical balance.Coming from an ATS-V the QV is a better car is almost every metric.The gen 3 CTS-V handles very well but it is atleast 500lbs heavier and roughly 13" longer than both those cars so has a move oversteering balance in the corners.
  7. New GM TSB 18-NA-355 to address transmission shudder has been released...

    2016+ CTS-V General Discussion Forum
    The triple flush for the 8 speed cured all of my issues on my ATS-V.I recommend everyone have it done on there V3
  8. Used ATS-Vs not selling well?

    Cadillac ATS-V Series Forum
    The options arent really all that important on preowned because they are the first to depreciate.The biggest factor in pricing besides the overall market for a car is usually the remaining warranty, vehicle location, and mileage.Anything under $45K for these cars with an active warranty and...
  9. GM 8-Speed Transmission

    Cadillac ATS-V Series Forum
    Ive had all of the above problems with mine jerky first gear, confused shifting, and converter highway surge.The tcm relearn wont do a thing and it will just come back.You need to have the TSB for the triple transmission fluid flush with the new fluid for this issue to be gone.I had it done on...
  10. Other ATS-V Sightings in SW Florida

    Cadillac ATS-V Series Forum
    Theirs a bunch of V's in South FL and more specifically surrounding the Miami area.Mine is a black auto sedan as well.These cars are awesome to experience but I wouldnt touch it or any other modern performance car outside of warranty myself.They all have a ton of little issues.
  11. Safe to Change Intake with No Tune?

    Cadillac ATS-V Series Forum
    For the uninitiated this is all nothing new.It was beaten to death for months across numerous threads and by now everyone should know it is bad news for the motor.In a perfect world everyone should get a tune to suite there mods but the reality is there are alot of bad tunes out there for these...
  12. What have you done to your ATS-V today?

    Cadillac ATS-V Series Forum
    Love the black 4 door reminds me alot of mine.My garage space is twice as big but sadly also always twice as dirty from projects.I do not park the V in there and use it do do alot of metal work so I just went with the Epoxy Shield floor coating in grey with colored flakes and the New Age steel...
  13. 2017 ATS-V... Pricing, etc

    Cadillac ATS-V Series Forum
    Congrats on the car ! I have driven the SS and I think it would have felt too similar to the ATS if you kept both in the stable.The CTS-V on the other hand is a different experience and alot more luxury than track so I think you definitely made the right choice overall.
  14. other options?

    Cadillac ATS-V Series Forum
    The only Audis I would even remotely consider would be the S7 or RS7 platform.Those stealthy machines are stupid quick and drive like you are on a cloud.Preowned they are reasonably affordable but they are financial suicide outside of warranty
  15. other options?

    Cadillac ATS-V Series Forum
    The RS3 is a solid performer but the car is even smaller and the interior is very plasticky for an Audi.The 8speed in the V is also a good performer but is also easily the worse thing about the car.Just like in the Corvettes, CTS-V, Denalis, etc they shift rough, shudder, and flare alot because...
